Shownotes:

Climate Change & Natural Disasters

  • Mankind starts to look for causes in the patterns
  • Sometimes we recognize patterns falsely
    • Pos Hoc Fallacy
  • Do we have a basis for saying that these recent hurricanes are the result of climate change?
    • God’s judgement or human-caused climate change?
  • Make sure that when you’re reading events, you don’t buy into the secular assumption of randomness
    • History is governed by God.
    • Amos: “If disaster befalls a city, have not I the Lord done it?”
    • But this doesn’t mean that we know the meaning.

P.G. Wodehouse—Leave it to Psmith

  • The best way to master metaphors is to read the masters. P.G. Wodehouse is a master of striking metaphors.
  • Out of all his books, Leave it to Psmith is my favorite.
  • All light comedies.
  • You’re not reading Wodehouse for a gripping insight into the human condition. They are great vacation reads.
    • At the same time, Wodehouse is truly gifted when it comes to metaphor
  • Reading these books aught to make your day.

Iniquity

  • Seems stronger than unrighteousness, but the same word
  • Judas’ the betrayer
